LG Pay was supposed to launch next to the V20 handset, but it looks like that is not going to happen anymore. The LG V20 smartphone will hit the South Korean market this week, on September 29, but the mobile payment service will apparently become available in 2017.

According to a report by NewsOne, quote by ZDNet, "LG Electronics has delayed the launch of LG Pay to next year due to problems during testing in Korea." The report reveals that the main culprit is the plan to make LG Pay work with the White Card physical card. This would have credit card and debit card info save on it, connecting to supported handsets via NFC.

While LG is said to have completed the LG Pay White Card development already, the errors faced during testing have forced the company to delay the launch of the service. Since LG still has to file for the regulatory approval of this service, remains to see if they manage to launch it in early 2017 or later during the year.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
